Most know that the way to an iguana's heart is through its stomach, but it is useful to remember that human stomachs can be reached through the mouth, nose, eyes, and—if it's an emergency—the number written on the refrigerator's dry-erase board. Today's Groupon stimulates your gentle iguana heart with a sensational feast of sweets: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods at Swiss Alps Bakery.
At Swiss Alps Bakery, owner Raimund Pepe transforms shapeless mounds of dough and batter into a toothsome range of cakes, pies, cookies, and other sweet treats. Breads are baked fresh daily and include such sliceable delicacies as german rye ($4.50) and french and italian bread ($2.99 each), fruit-filled danishes ($1.65), and nationally ambiguous, but equally tasty rolls ($4.50/ dozen). Tongue titillating sweets such as chocolate éclairs, brownies, and swiss raisin shortbread cookies will have taste buds dancing a spirited volkstanz on the tongue, while a collection of covetous cakes such as sachertorte, linzertorte, and tiramisu will make them thankful that Austria and Italy are no longer separated by the Berlin Wall. In addition to its regular daily offerings, Swiss Alps is also happy to cater to customers with allergies or other special dietary needs by creating sugar-free, wheat-free, and gluten-free goods upon request.
